Resolved To Be” is the new blog of my blessed mother. Having moved from Robin’s Egg Blue, she hopes to more thoroughly capture her vision through her new site, making it a sweet and inviting place to encourage other wives, mothers, and homemakers.

It was a delight to have the opportunity to design her new blog, and she’s a joy to work with.

The theme incorporates gentle shades of taupe, blue, and red through an elegant combination of the decorative font, seamless background, and beveled edges.

And the added detail of a faded clock in the top-right corner of the header is a quiet reminder of the shortness of life . . . the brief amount of time we have on this beautiful earth . . . and how we must resolve and be intentional in all that we do.

I encourage you to visit Resolved To Be, leave my precious mother a comment, and maybe even subscribe to her updates.

    You have such an eye for understated, feminine design, I am really in awe of your talent! I wanted to ask how you learned to design blog templates. We run a full time family business doing screen printing, embroidery and graphic design – but we are just getting into web design. We are all so busy that I don’t have time to surf through tons of worthless YouTube videos trying to learn, so if you have any resources that you used and recommended, that would be a blessing to me. Thanks!

    Dearest Emily,
    You did a beautiful job on your sweet mother’s website. The design is simply lovely. You are truly talented, dear friend!
    I wanted to let you know that I am hosting my first giveaway, and it will be ending on Monday. I didn’t know if you and your sister may be interested in entering!
    Have a joyful day in the Lord!

    Your Sister In Christ,

    Your mother’s blog is beautiful! Well done! If only the rest of us had as much creativity as you have in your little finger, the blogshpere would be a much more beautiful place!

    Dear Emily,
    What a wonderful design! Beautiful job!
    I had a quick question. What blogging service Blogger, Word press etc. do you use?
